The Hamas terrorist establishment has found a way to continue feeding its children a steady diet of hate against Israel and the U.S.: meet “Nahool,” a cute little bumblebee whose goal in life is to be a martyr.

 

“Nahool” the bumblebee is the new replacement on children's TV for the Mickey Mouse look-alike character, “Farfur”, who was killed off in the face of international outrage following a report on the program by the Palestinian Media Watch organization.

Transcript of Nahool's first words to Arab children viewers:

Hostess Saraa’: “Who are you? And where did you come from?”
Nahool: “I am Nahool [the bee], Farfur’s cousin.”
Saraa’: “And what do you want?”
Nahool: "I want to continue the path of Farfur, the path of “Islam is the solution”. The path of heroism, the path of martyrdom, the path of the Jihad warriors. Me and my friends shall continue the path of Farfur. And in his name we shall take revenge upon the enemies of Allah, the murderers of the prophets [i.e. the Jews], the murderers of innocent children, until Al-Aqsa will be liberated from their filth.”
Saraa’: “Welcome! Welcome Nahool.”

Styled after the famous Disney character, Farfur was the star of a television program that taught PA children how to carry out terrorist attacks, encouraging them to become “shahids” (martyrs) in suicide bombings against Israelis.

Walt Disney’s daughter Diane was outraged when she was made aware of the use of her father’s friendly little mouse character in the Hamas mission to teach children to hate and kill, calling it “pure evil.”

The program’s producers yanked the character after all the negative publicity, killing him off in such a way as to reinforce the show’s anti-Israel message.  The final Farfur episode showed the little mouse being murdered by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfur’s land.

According to reports, Disney was considering a lawsuit against the terrorist organization for copyright infringement.

“I want to continue the path of Farfur,” says little Nahool to the show’s hostess in his debut. “I and my friends shall continue the path of Farfur….the path of martyrdom, the path of the Jihad warriors…and in his name we shall take revenge upon the enemies of Allah……..until [the] Al-Aksa (mosque in Jerusalem) will be liberated from their filth.”

Jews are typically referred to as “enemies of Allah” by Islamic religious leaders in their virulent anti-Israel sermons.
